Chapter 12 discusses the effects of toxic chemicals on the respiratory system. Go to http://www.epa.gov/airdata, and investigate the hazardous chemicals in your area. After choosing your area from the map, choose Monitor Values under Hazardous Air Pollutants. Choose two air pollutants from the list, and generate your report. Tell the class which chemicals you chose, and discuss your thoughts on your results. Are there any facilities very close to you? Did you know about these emissions? Do you have any concerns about the potential effects of these chemicals in your local air?
